The L.A. band Silversun Pickups has been one of the most important acts on the alternative scene since their debut over a decade ago. In that time, they've released a number of vibrant, pulsating albums with a unique intensity.
That might suggest that the band members are intense people, but clearly that is not the case. I sat down with Brian Aubert and Nikki Monninger to talk about their latest effort Better Nature. We chatted about their writing process, light-hearted nature and even a bit about the cult film "The Warriors."
Check out great live versions of new songs like "Nightlight" and band favorite "Lazy Eye."
